hi Experts,

We have a 3 server cluster. one of the physical server crashed. We need to get rid of it and add a new server in its place.

What is the safest way to do it?

Are there any services still listed on the node?

Look in Hyper-V Manager to confirm that no resources are still listed there despite having failed over to another node in the cluster.

In Failover Cluster Manager:
 + Verify that all CSV and Storage is owned by another node
 + Verify the Cluster Name is owned by another node
